Hardback. A work of fiction based on fact. "If I should be missing enquire of the Rev Mr Avery of Bristol he will know where I am." Without this note, written on December 20, 1832, the death of Sarah Maria Cornell, whose hanged body was found the next day, might have been dismissed as suicide. Cornell, a 29yr. old mill worker, was pregnant, her story a sad but familiar one. Rummaging through her belongings unearths further correspondence, evidence that she believed Avery to have been the father of her unborn child. In one of the 19th century's most sensational cases, Ephraim Avery stood trial for murder, the first minister in American history to do so. 353pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true-crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Vg. in Vg. dw. which is sl. faded on sp.
